It is usually served with a variety of side dishes such as shredded omelet, serundeng (relish of grated coconut and spices), urab (vegetable in shredded coconut dressing), teri kacang (fried anchovy and peanuts), sambal goreng (fried tempehand potato caramelized in spicy sauce), ayam goreng (Javanese-style fried chicken), balado udang (shrimp in chilli), or perkedel (potato fritters).
